Organisers of this year's Tour of Britain bike race were so impressed by Newport's new tied arch bridge that they routed the pack of cyclists across it three times in the course of last Saturday's 154km penultimate stage. The 187m long crossing, which carries Newport's southern distributor road across the River Usk, was designed by FaberMaunsell and built by Anglo-French JV contractor Morgan Vinci. The stage was won by overall winner Mauricio Ardilla of Colombia.
